Hamden- Quinnipiac University held a town hall to discuss diversity. A panel of people, including Vice President Mark Thompson, spoke about surveys and focus groups being conducted. According to the research, Quinnipiac’s diversity has increased. However, students and faculty want to see more.
The focus groups found both strengths and weaknesses that Quinnipiac holds. Mark Thompson believes the weaknesses are reachable goals for change.
Students and faculty engaged in the conversation. Some students think that having more classes include diversity into everyday discussion could be beneficial. The faculty encouraged Mark Thompson to include more diversity programs and classwork into upcoming curriculum.
There are many upcoming events where similar conversations will be held. Students and faculty are encouraged to attend future events and to be a part of the change.
